"Leigh is a gracious Southern lady who uses a combination of competence and consideration to get things done. Always diplomatic, Leigh is wonderful at coming up with innovative solutions to challenging situations that work for everyone.
Leigh possesses a strong work ethic, a high degree of personal integrity, and a genuine desire to give you the event of your dreams; and she delivers!
I could not have done my daughter's wedding without her. In the months leading up to the wedding, she served as my right hand. On the day of the wedding she was my right hand, my left hand and my saving grace!
I thought that I could only afford a day-of-wedding coordinator, but a few months before the wedding, I felt that my daughter and I would both benefit from hiring Leigh. She instantly became a part of our team and provided so much help and encouragement. She excelled at organization, vendor relationships, logistics, day-of-wedding coordination and comprehensive timelines. In addition, she was excellent at providing reassurance to the Bride and the Mother of the Bride! Of the many wedding-related expenses, the best money that I spent was on hiring Leigh!"
"Leigh Bawcom is a fantastic wedding planner! I had the unique opportunity to work with Leigh both as her day-of wedding assistant for several years and as one of her brides this winter. From the first appointment to the wedding day, Leigh uses her extensive knowledge of the wedding industry to make all of her brides’ dreams come true. Her professional, attentive manner immediately makes her brides, grooms, and their parents feel comfortable and alleviates any or all concerns they might have. Leigh is always punctual to meetings, flexible, and organized, and she thoughtfully recommends vendors who stay within the brides’ budgets. After working with her, I knew that I would hire her as my wedding planner! Thanks to her, I used the best vendors that I have ever worked with! I was particularly impressed with her ability to run my wedding rehearsal and coordinate the wedding day. She ran an efficient rehearsal, kept the attention of the wedding party, and ensured that Luke and I would not be nervous for the ceremony! On the day of the wedding, she arrived early, coordinated with all the vendors, decorated, and checked in with me to make sure that I had everything I needed. The entire day ran smoothly! Leigh was such an integral part of our wedding, and Luke and I are thankful for everything she did to make our day so wonderful!"
"Wow, it is hard to believe it is now over two months since our wedding. As I look back at this magical day I know I could not have pulled this long-distance wedding off without Leigh. We couldn't have done it without her suggestions, sage advice, experience, and time-line. However, it was not just her organizational input that was important. I actually loved the wedding day itself because I did not have to think about the minute details of our reception - Leigh and Rebecca took care of these. Because of that I can echo my husband's words the morning after our wedding: "that party was the best night of my life". So, thank you to Leigh for all she did: calming me down over many phone calls from Los Angeles leading up to our big day, seeing to the caterers, band, pictures at Carnton, seating, bartenders, lighting, and clean-up. My dad especially enjoyed her handling of the police when they showed up late in the evening (which I didn't even know about until a few weeks later).
This wedding was everything I could have ever imagined."
"From the very start of the planning process, Leigh put me at ease. Her knowledge and experience of the industry helped us make informed decisions to craft the perfect day. Leigh sincerely wants her couples to be happy with their wedding - she listens to what you want and puts her whole heart into making those dreams become a reality. She supported our less-than-traditional ideas with enthusiasm and met them with great suggestions. Leigh is focused and calm, and her confidence allowed me to enjoy every moment of our wedding.
Even when our officiant was stuck in traffic before the ceremony, Leigh came up with plan B to make sure our wedding would still be perfect - she is quick to fix any crisis that comes her way. Fortunately, our officiant did make it on time, and my husband and I never even knew there was a crisis to begin with!"
"Leigh's attention to detail and her experience working with the vendors she recommends made every step of our wedding planning worry-free. We were more than happy to put the details in her hands which allowed us to enjoy every moment of our special day!"
"Leigh was wonderful to work with!! She took the time to get to know us and the vision we had for our wedding day. Leigh was able to put our big-picture idea into action and it exceeded all hopes and expectation! By making great vendor recommendations, Leigh connected us to quality options and mitigated the decision making process. As we worked through details, Leigh had an eye for options that would come together perfectly for our hybrid look. With both our families out of town, Leigh was really flexible to accommodate travel schedules throughout the planning process. Her event planning expertise ensured there were no hiccups leading up to the wedding and the day-of went seamlessly. We're thrilled to have had Leigh as part of our celebration! She kept the process organized, fun, and low-stress."
"How wonderful to be able to truly 'enjoy' your daughter's wedding!!! From engagement to wedding day, Leigh took care of every detail. Her organizational skills and lists of fabulous vendors made the entire planning process easy and realistically affordable. She was always available to answer any questions that we had. We just had to show up (according to Leigh's down-to-the minute schedule) on the big day without a worry about any of the details. We had a wonderful experience and a perfect wedding! Thank you, Leigh!"
"Fathers of the bride who don't think a wedding planner is a necessity and mothers of the bride who want to enjoy the whole process, listen carefully. Leigh Bawcom brings experience, diplomacy, and knowledge to the table. Every vendor we interviewed including the venue coordinator and the band knew and had worked with Leigh. She lived up to her reputation as efficient and always available to answer questions during the planning process and all over every detail on our wedding day . That all translates to the best experience possible while you relax and enjoy what matters most. Hire someone else at your own risk!"
"Leigh Bawcom was instrumental in helping to plan the wedding day of my dreams. From my first meeting with her and feeling so comfortable, to the part where she held the train of my dress so it didn't get wet as I walked down the aisle, Leigh was there every step of the way. Her attention to detail is impeccable, her demeanor is calm, cool and collective and she has great ideas that I couldn't have ever dreamed. She also has many contacts throughout the Nashville-area, so you do not have to go searching on your own. I highly recommend Leigh to plan any event (small or large). You will not be disappointed and end up coming away with an amazing event!"
"Leigh Bawcom is one of the most creative and organized people I know. I have had the good fortune to work with her on several events, large and small, that have been highly successful. Her goals are to connect and listen to those she serves resulting in clients who are delighted and who will continue to be her best referrals. She is just a star!"
